WWE is going all-out for the upcoming 1,000th RAW celebration on July 23rd and plans to treat the show as a PPV-caliber event.
WWE has reached out to dozens of legends to appear at the show, including the usual suspects (Roddy Piper, Dusty Rhodes, Sgt. Slaughter, Jim Duggan, Gene Okerlund, Jimmy Hart) as well as many top names from the Attitude Era. WWE is even considering bringing in Bobby Heenan, but his health situation might prevent him from appearing.
There has been talk of incorporating several vintage production techniques to the show, similar to what we saw on the special “Old School” RAW back in 2010.
The plan is to announce several big matches for the 1,000th RAW and promote the show hard in the weeks leading up to it.
WWE has reached out to the Undertaker and wants to promote his television return several weeks in advance as well.
